Z's Diary November 23, 2010
A wonderful couple, Barbara and Reuven, brought this photo to the barn for John and Dottie. In the note, Barbara said she made this as a gift for Reuven last year for Christmas because he was “A SUPER FAN OF ZENYATTA SINCE HER VERY FIRST RACE!” She crocheted the scarf in John’s stable colors and then made the other pieces to go with it. I guess they have been following John’s horses for some time now.
According to Barbara, “they were there when Giacomo broke his maiden and followed him all the way to the Kentucky Derby victory.” This is adorable.
Then when they read that “Zenyatta was toying with Tiago in her works”…they came to my maiden race and have followed me since.
Horseracing is such a special sport. I have been greatly blessed to meet so many wonderful people during the last few years.
Just think…this Thanksgiving will mark the 4th Anniversary of the day I broke my maiden. I truly have so much to be thankful for each day!
Have a terrific Tuesday!
Hugs to all~
